  • Description


    Hey Workawayers,

    After traveling the world my husband (Joel) and I (Lisa) got a cute little baby (Louis).
    Coming from Berlin we bought a house in Bad Berka, which is close to the famous cultural city of Weimar. We made it a cozy place to live, but it's still a lot of work to be done in and around the house. We have a big garden which we want to transform to a eco-friendly and child friendly place.
    Help us building vegetable beds, a butterfly meadow, renovating another room and/or take care of little Louis in the afternoon.

    Joel and I are working during the day, so you are free to organize your day however you like and enjoy the garden and the nature close by. Or visit the famous cultural city of Weimar, which is close by.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will be happy to share about travelling and about my time living with indigenous peoples.
    If you like you can enjoy the culture in Weimar which is mostly influenced by Goethe, a German famous author, and Bauhaus architecture.
    I highly recommend to enjoy the nature around the City which is only 200m from our house. Visit bigger cities nearby to do some shopping or sightseeing. It's about half an hour to get to Erfurt or Jena.

    As we just moved in there are still many things to be done in the house and in the garden.

    What are you good at? We will fit sure find a project that you will like.

    There are also some general things to do around the house and garden and little Louis to be taken care of.

    I can explain everything that needs to be done and we have all the tools and material we will need.
    Louis (2,5 years) is generally easy, but very active. He likes to play and is very curious about everything.
